Open letter to the Minister for Education & Minister for Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Planning

As part of the Litterless Campaign, Yr 6 students at St.Nicholas College, Dingli Primary School, sent an email to the Minister for Education and Employment, Hon. Dr Justyne Caruana and Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Planning, Hon. Dr Aaron Farrugia.   In their email, the students talked about the survey they had carried out at school regarding the Breakfast Club. They had investigated and assessed the type of food that is not being eaten and why, and also how much food is being wasted. Their findings were discussed and recommendations were planned. Through their email, the students proposed realistic solutions to the authorities with the aim of raising awareness amongst other schools too.  #litterlesscampaign.

Dingli Primary School embarks on Xrobb l-Għaġin Nature Park Boundary Wall Project

Dingli Primary is currently participating in the Xrobb l-Għaġin Nature Park boundary wall project. This project consists of the embellishment of the perimeter wall of the park with indigenous plant and shrub species. 

The present boundary wall is being demolished and an environmentally sensitive boundary wall is being constructed. The new wall shall include a 1km long stretch of low level 5 course wall using weathered recycled limestone. It will also consist of 2 metre long planters where indigenous coastal shrubs from the Xrobb l-Għaġin peninsula shall be planted. 

Dingli Primary is one of 50 schools that has adopted a number of cuttings for propagation. Year 5 EkoSkola members have planted the cuttings and seeds and once they grow,  they will be planting them into the large planters making up the boundary wall.

The first primary school at Dingli was founded in 1858. In 1903, it moved to 17, Main Street. These first 8 classrooms are still being used to date. In the early 1960′s, a new wing was built. Before being amalgamated with the primary school, for a number of years the newly-built block was used as an Area Secondary School. In 1975 the first Kindergarten class was opened. Nowadays Dingli Primary School caters for 9 primary classes and  5 kindergarten classes.
